The Village of Key Biscayne and City Theatre present Heidi Schreck’s WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME, a hilarious and hopeful examination of one woman’s civil rights, and wrongs.
A New York Times critic’s pick, a Tony Award nominee, and Pulitzer Prize finalist when it premiered on Broadway in 2019, Key Biscayne audiences will enjoy two free performances of City Theatre’s comedic production straight off a critically acclaimed run at Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
Directed by City Theatre’s Artistic Director Margaret M. Ledford with Associate Director Gail S. Garrisan, this production is made through the generous support of the Village of Key Biscayne and the Key Biscayne Community Center. This funny and achingly human play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. Inspired by real events, a young Heidi wins constitutional debate contests around the country to earn college tuition. However, as an adult she discovers how debate topics become personal when life and its consequences get messy. Surprising, poignant, and achingly human, the play traces the profound relationship between four generations of women, the founding document that shaped their lives, and how it continues to influence future generations.
